Democratic Congressman Tells Michael Cohen Now Is The Time To Cooperate With Mueller

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) delivered the message to Michael Cohen that now is the time to cooperate with Robert Mueller.

Video:

Rep. Swalwell said on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House:

We were as thorough as you could be on the democratic side without having subpoena power and without having Republicans across the table from us on these interviews who showed the same interest. And so, you know, we asked all of the questions that the public would expect us to ask, but the problem was that you know, Donald Trump, Jr., when asked about the Trump Tower meeting and conversations with his father, he refused to answer any of them. And when we asked chairman Conaway way who was presiding on the Republican side to subpoena Donald Trump, Jr., and force him to answer, they never forced him to do that. They were able to essentially answer the questions they wanted to answer and just walk away from the ones that got too close. But, you know, frankly, Nicolle, when I hear Michael Cohen through these sources say that Donald Trump knew about the meeting, that’s like telling us that the sun sets in the west. read more

Robert Mueller Is Ending Trump’s World As Manafort Ordered To Jail

Paul Manafort being ordered to jail is another sign that Mueller in ending Trump’s world.

Will this cause him to reconsider and begin to enter into plea negotiations? I can’t answer that question but its to be noted this does change the circumstances now. The charges were filed by Robert Mueller in October. They have been adding to this case bit by bit. The latest charge they added was one of the things that happened in this hearing today was he was arraigned on new charges of witness tampering. That’s what led the judge to revoke his bail saying he agreed when he was let out on bail that he wouldn’t violate any laws. Now he’s charged with violating witness tampering laws even though his lawyer said what he did didn’t amount to the kind of witness tampering that Mueller was talking about. I think that’s the question. Does it change his calculus on how to go forward.” read more
